Energy Transition



I provide consultancy services regarding climate change, decarbonisation and energy transitions. As an experienced analyst and strategist, I have lead research and analysis of various international think tanks and non-profit organizations on power sector transformation and financial flows of renewable and fossil fuel investments.

I managed the portfolio of one of the major philanthropies on climate and energy in Turkey and worked with leading institutions on low-carbon transitions - Greenpeace, WWF, 350.org, Agora Energiewende, Chamber of Environmental Engineers, SHURA Energy Transition Centre to name a few. I have served in the steering committee of the leading energy transition think tank in Turkey and founded several civic initiatives. I am currently a sessional teaching staff at the University of Melbourne of Sustainability Governance and Leadership MSc course while conducting my Ph.D. My current research focuses on justice in energy transitions.



I have 13 years of experience in strategy development, grant making, supervising research and policy/advocacy work of the civil society, agenda setting and convening constituencies for decarbonisation programmes of NGO’s, think tanks and universities.


I have authored various reports and conducted research on challenges and opportunities of power sector decarbonization and financial flows of renewable and fossil fuel investments.
